My name is Ashleigh Scully and I am a wildlife photographer. I am 13 years old and I have been photographing since I was 8 years old. I photograph in my home state of New Jersey and when I travel with my family on vacations. I especially like to shoot in Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. My favorite subjects to photograph are owls and red foxes.
Being a wildlife photographer means a lot to me. It has allowed me to see wildlife in a way that most people do not get to and so I am excited to be able to share my photos with as many people as I can. I like to use my photos to help raise awareness of important issues facing wildlife, and to tell stories about wildlife conservation. I have used my photos to make books from Apple Aperture and I sold them and donated the money to a land trust and a raptor rehabilitation center. I have also donated some photos to other raptor centers. It makes me feel good to know that my photographs can make a difference. I have been awarded Highly Honored in Nature’s Best Windland Smith Rice Youth twice, was awarded as a Finalist in the 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year (11-14), and I won the 10-13 year-old category of the 2015 Por el Planeta International Wildlife and Nature Conservation Photography Competition. I hope that these competitions can inspire more young people to pick up a camera and photograph nature.
